    How do you get a pen tablet to work with Photoshop? It can control
    photoshop menus, but can't get a black paint tool to paint on a white
    background. Where do you tell Photoshop CS to paint with the tablet?

    What sort of tablet is it?

    Huh? You install the driver that came with the tablet, & it all just
    works the way you'd expect it to. At least, that's true of my Wacom.
    Perhaps yours is just emulating a mouse, & doesn't do pressure

    Hey Lionel,
    Thanks for replying!
    I was trying to troubleshoot this for a friend... the tablet wasn't a Wacom
    (it was a dolphin (sp?) or somesuch) and we couldn't get it to work.
    If you painted black on a white canvas it would come up in the history list
    but wouldn't show up on the canvas!
    So we decided that it would be better to get a refund and get a Wacom
    From reading the net, it appears Wacom is the way to go!
    Thanks again!

    very nice to use.
